For all damageless boss achievments - If you will get damaged right before the boss, and activate the boss area while still being invincible from the hit, achievement code will count it as being damaged by the boss and will not trigger.

Mastered. Man that deathless achievement was very difficult to get.

A bug occurs to me that does not let me enter the houses. No matter how many buttons I press and no matter how hard I try, it does not enter the houses. Has anyone else been through it?
It's random, but it bugs me at the worst times.

Happened to me to, it occurs because if you hold left or right while trying to enter a house it overrides the character entering it. Quality game design right there.

*At least I believe that's the issue, the first three levels are within the first three houses and which house is first second or third is randomly generated.
